Residents will find person centered dementia care whether they are facing Dementia, Memory Loss or Alzheimer’s. A small staff to resident ratio allows specialized dementia care in our scenic Maine home-like environment.
At The Vicarage, the whole person is recognized as the center of the dementia care model. We embrace and respect the individual reality of each person who lives with us by honoring and normalizing their experience, giving each person the opportunity to thrive. Our focus on the social and psychological well-being of our residents includes families and the community. We are a leader in Maine Dementia Care.
“True care” allows each person the opportunity to thrive. The Vicarage seeks to provide a vibrant environment in which all individuals are encouraged to grow and flourish.
Individualized Dementia Care
The normalization of dementia experience is what defines The Vicarage culture. Each individual deserves and receives dignified, person centered dementia care, allowing for continued growth and preservation of identity. Relationships with peers, staff, family, pets and community keep residents enriched and engaged.
Allowing residents to live in their own reality is essential to high quality dementia care. A superior staff to resident ratio of one to four ensures individuals’ needs are understood and met. Staff honor the experience of each person through attentive, personalized care.
Safety and security of residents are ensured with technology (motion detectors) and an exceptional staff to resident ratio of one to four. Residents, joined by staff, are encouraged to engage with the outdoors and walk along the beautiful lane and Oceanside.
In our experience, exercise lowers the anxiety that often accompanies this illness, thereby lessening the use of medications.
Affordable Maine Dementia Care
The Vicarage offers exceptional dementia care at rates, determined by the level of care, that are typically lower than larger assisted living or nursing facilities, with no hidden or administrative fees.
Visitors are always welcome.
